SARS member and past SARS President, Bill Wendt AC6FJ (left) has been suffering from a serious illness and has been hospitalized at the QOV.  Older hams will remeber Bill who was always quick to step up when someone needed help whether it was putting up, taking down or taking a test.  Bill is also a VE and has been for many years.

Cards and letters would be most appreciated.  Contact me for mailing addresses and phone numbers –

This is what happens when you lower your antenna too fast:  Actually it was the sudden stop that did the damage.  One of the hoisting lines parted and down it came. I’m told it sounded like a bomb going off – total loss.
